Blowfly to Talk Shit at Boise's Bitch Ass

Sunday, Nov. 4 at Red Room

There are a lot of good reasons to see dirty rap artist Blowfly at Red Room Sunday, Nov. 4. Let's start with the fact that he's an underground legend whose satirical raps, outrageous personality and wickedly funky tracks were a major influence on bands like Public Enemy, Dead Kennedys and Fishbone.

Then there's the list of hit songs he wrote and produced for KC and the Sunshine Band and Sam and Dave. Or the claim that, with albums dating back to the '60s--long before New York DJs got hip to the amelodic, polyrhythmic vocal style--he may actually be the first rapper. Not to mention he's a wildly entertaining personality, whose sexual depravity and bizarrely confrontational comedic style know no bounds.

But here's the best reason to see Blowfly: With all due respect to the potty-mouthed legend, the dude is old as shit and you might not get another chance.
